BIG THANKS to Greg Meredith (RChain Cooperative) for his patience and wisdom in introducing us to Rho Calculus as it pertains to creating blockchain contracts. Included below is a deck he created for collaborative composition experiments, “A sketch of some thoughts about the transition from computational agency to biological agency,” a question of sustainable food sourcing, as but one model being adapted, from his document “Towards a Living World.”
For the participants of the New Music Gathering 2021 in August… You will have received an email from Team NMG in which I invite you to be part of an innovative recorded musical collaboration based on structures found in blockchain.
If you would like to be a co-composer on this project, please follow the instructions and reply to the email address provided.

“I am honored to find out today that I received a 2020-2021 cash award from NYU Tisch School of the Arts. The award, from the Adjunct Professional Development Grant Award Fund, is to further develop my work via Remote Recording Workshops in the composition, performance, and public engagement of our mobile electric guitar project Tilted Axes for its 10th anniversary.
The created work will be used to address community concerns (i.e. the use of public spaces), global concerns (i.e. climate change and renewable energy), and future concerns (i.e. space exploration and unforeseen discoveries). Above all, it’s about connecting as humans, creating music together, and moving it out into the world.”
VERY happy to announce that VOX Amps and KORG USA have renewed and upped their sponsorship of Tilted Axes: Music for Mobile Electric Guitars! We now embark on the road to our 10th anniversary this coming December on the Winter Solstice. Stay tuned for all the news leading up to Tilted@10.
